I honestly never touch our thermostat. Right now (I had to go check) it’s at 69. I’m not sure I have any recommendations, but I just wanted to ask if any of you have spouses who are constantly tinkering with the temperature? I would like to impose a rule that if you enter the house, you should not be allowed to touch the thermostat until you’ve been in the house for 15 minutes or longer. That is reasonable, right?
Mr.N2S will come in from a bike ride, run, mowing the lawn, or what have you and almost immediately bump up the AC (during hotter months) because - duh! He’s still hot from his activity. The rest of us lazy house dwellers are comfortable, thank you. Let your body acclimate to the indoors for just a moment before you touch that thing! It’s one of Mr.N2S’s flaws but I still do love him dearly.
We also have blankets in just about every room that you can use if you are feely chilly. Socks and jackets/sweatshirts work too!
